This document provides an overview of the Filter and View templates feature found in table in the Outpost24 Portal UI. 


This document describes the Common Settings including filtering options, and settings to customize the view.

Filters allow for quick limitation of viewed data to relevant entries. By applying filters in multiple columns, it is possible to narrow down a large dataset to find a particular entry or to discover any abnormalities, missing data, or missing actions.


When looking for a particular hostname (that includes a number in domain name) in Assets view, choose Hostname in the Type column and enter that number in the Name column to narrow down the search results. Additionally, a scanner ID can be submitted to ensure a direct search result.


It is assumed that the reader has basic access to the OUTSCAN/HIAB account to access the Portal.

View Templates

Customize each view by adding or removing the columns and by applying filters. Each view has a Filter and View templates panel. To access it, click the Filter icon in the bar spanning along the left edge of the table. This displays the Filter and View templates panel.

Inside the Filter and View templates panel, it is possible to add or remove columns, apply filters, save current view state and make it persist on your account.

To access the table view templates panel, click the View Templates tab. 

Several built in views already exists, but you can add more by pressing the (plus) icon.
